Finished watching! This was a nice breezy film at only 48 minutes that provides a fascinating (and dramatic) look at an example of an early 20th century car race.

This one was pretty good—not anything unforgettable, but it held your attention and was interesting.
Below, some comments on comments. But first, haven't we had the best time watching and talking about these films? :D :db: I look forward to more!

Here are my rankings of the ten films from most to least favorite. But I enjoyed them all. :D

No. 1 was clearcut. I had a hard time ranking 2, 3, and 4. Those should all really be tied for No. 2. And I don't really like The Love Expert being as low as no. 5 because I loved Constance Talmadge so much in that one. The top five I'd certainly like to see again.

1. The Soul of Youth
2. Something to Think About
3. Why Change Your Wife?
4. The Mark of Zorro
5. The Love Expert
6. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
7. Way Down East
8. Pollyanna
9. Excuse My Dust
10. Suds

Care to share your rankings? :)
